Full GR (General Relativity) movies, a la "Interstellar".

The problem with a lot of GR stuff is that it isn't easy to visualize, so true GR movies would help enormously in teaching the concepts of GR.

You should be able to get access to the SW from the folks at Caltech.

A suggestion: looking for cyclic (at least apparently cyclic, to within the error of the numerical simulations) solutions of 3-body problem in GR.

Crypto content: very high precision chaotic computations can be used for pseudorandom number generators.
